We get a lot of our training inspiration from the AFL- CIO and it is launching a new digital training series. We encourage our labor folks to take advantage of this opportunity. The series includes beginner, intermediate and advanced courses. We will be taking part in the trainings as well. Join us as we get our learn on! Sign up for the trainings at www.aflcio.org/digitaltraining.

Whether you’re a field staffer who wants to learn what this all is, or a comms staffer looking to get more skills, or just someone who’s curious, we have something for you. And you’ll be trained by some of the top labor digital practitioners (and a few of our progressive allies) so you know the most effective, cutting-edge tips and tricks for navigating digital organizing.
In our first month, we’re offering trainings that will help you convince your boss to invest in digital work, how to set up a Twitter or Facebook account, how to write great emails that make people take action, and the basics of good graphic design. It’s a pretty packed schedule, but it’s all via webinar to make it easy for you to join in wherever you are.
But we’re just getting started. Over the coming months, we’re offering a whole slate of useful trainings that you can apply to your work right away. These will be practical, designed just for a labor audience, and with plenty of time to ask all your questions.
Be sure to sign up for the trainings before they all get full!
